It's... ok

If you are a puzzle game fanatic, you'll find a lot to love. Several modes, classic block matching action with a slight twist, and colorful, creative characters to guide you on your way. For anyone else, I can't really recommend it. I played about 2 hours, and haven't played since. I mean, it's solid. It does what you expect. But it doesn't really break any new ground. Seems like it just has a hard time finding it's niche in the world of gaming. It seems just a bit too complex for the casual market, and also far too simple for the hardcore gamer. It's more of a minigame than a full blown experience. Granted, it's cheap. But you get what you pay for.

Fantastic Puzzle Adventure!

I have played my fair share of puzzle games, and it is getting to the point where it is very difficult to find an inventive mechanic that has not been seen in every other puzzle game known to man. Tidalis manages the near-impossible feat of offering a refreshing game mechanic outside of the generic match-3 puzzler. Instead of that, Tidalis give you arrows on the blocks, and you must use the arrows to direct a path to other blocks of the same color. It sounds pretty simple when explained like that, but Tidalis constantly shakes things up by adding obstacles throughout the main modes to keep you on your toes. It's a refreshing mechanic, and I highly recommend it to anyone who frequently plays puzzle games.

Awesome!

Excellent puzzle game and I generally hate puzzle games. TONS of depth; more game modes than I care to count, a ~10 hour long campaign that challenges you at every turn by gradually increasing the difficulty, acclimating you to new modes and concepts while setting different victory conditions. If you bought this game because you're an AI War fan then you will not be disappointed (With Arcen you never will be) because this game does for puzzle games what AI War does for the RTS genre; it breaks every convention while adding a level of depth never before seen in this style of game

Great game! Arcen is a great developer. After AI WAR they now offer us this casual game... with a twist. Addictive, compelling and fun, Tidalis is a great casual game, perfect to wind-off. It really good and it surprises you! A must buy and Arcen is a developer to support, definitely.
